I received a disturbing email today. It said that the reason for our national debt has absolutely nothing to do with the Iraq War. Instead, it's illegal aliens. Yes, it's all the fault of these illegals that the U.S. is going bankrupt. Fourteen reasons were given for how illegals cost us all this money. All were offensive. All based on twisted logic, ignorance and hypocrisy.
Some were based purely on racial prejudice, things like illegal aliens are criminals, so it costs us money to arrest them and keep them in our prisons. Wait, it gets worse. "In particular," states one reason on the list, "their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US." While most of my readers sit in stunned silence, I want to clarify that the misplaced commas were in the quote, not of my doing.
There were 14 reasons, as I said. The fourteenth is the work of evil minds.
"14. 'The Dark Side of Illegal Immigration: Nearly One million sex crimes Committed by Illegal Immigrants in the United States.' Verify at: http:// www.drdsk.com/articleshtml ."
Don't bother to click that link; "The web page can't be found."
The email concluded with a request to forward it in chain mail fashion, but only to "every legal resident in the country...." I won't be forwarding, by the way.
If someone would like the information for the purpose of publicly shredding it to bits, point by point, email me with a request, and I'll send you the list.
